of the things that we were determined to protect in that debate was the new markets tax credit, something that has benefited some of these kinds of initiatives throughout the country. so whether it was long ago and the low-income housing tax credit of which mercy housing has participated in over and over again and the new market tax credit, one of the current versions of the story. or the section 8 vouchers or the rest of that, public policy has played a role. but we can only be successful in achieving the funding for that public policy if we have examples of national significance to say this must be a priority. and it is a priority because mercy housing and st. anthony's makes people the priority. results. deeds, not just words. the words are important, but they are no substitute for making something happen from it. we all know the gospel of matthew and i was hungry, you gave me to eat and that is what st. anthony's has done. when you were homeless, you gave me shelter and that is mercy housing and they have come together. it's not just about food and housing, but it's about dignity and

what would happen with their taxes. the uncertainty was horrendous, the mood sour. . we were getting all sorts of cross currents about what would happen with corporate and personal taxes. were they going to raise taxes, were capital gains going up? would the alternative minimum tax snare millions of people? would businesses have to start a whole brand new round of layoffs? executive after executive came on this show to say, look, we can't do a thing. what's the point? we will just have to undo it. business confidence plummeted, and the idea of forming a new business. well, remember when the ceo of paychex came on and talked about the paralysis caused by the cliff? who would leave his job to start a new business in that environment? okay. retail sales weren't that bad. but they nose dived right at the end of the quarter. retailers were afraid to restock inventory figuring that spending would drop off the cliff right along with the nation's finances. it was all in all a very bad time for our nation. now, overlay the storm of the century for the northeast. one that shut down the wealthi
